Heavy Scandinavian humor

por Astrid Allsop (2021-04-07)

For your query'Scandinavian humor'Yandex, such as, provides only 4 absolutely matching links. At least one is complete nonsense, the 2nd results in a writeup on Erlend Lou's literary creation, which really has quite adequate humor - Volvo Trucks, the 3rd - towards the entry in LiveJournal while using wording'heavyweight Scandinavian humor ', the last to your certain forum to the niche'Norman theory and Scandinavian humor ', and I didnrrrt see anything about humor directly. The image is symptomatic, right?

In a nutshell, in case the descendants with the Vikings have humor, it is rather peculiar. Not the Russian folk "three ha-ha" but not including the idiotic Bin from Foggy Albion, very understandable and near to the Russian soul.

At this time, we've got to don't forget the fact the characters will humor in'The Most Important Boss'in the suggestion and in the strict guidance in the well-known many-something-fob Lars Trier, the carrier of the proudly attached prefix'von ', which in is funny if have proper picture of ​​some facts regarding the director's biography with the exceptional previous film works.

However, Trier, famous for his unbridled film innovation, having filmed films off imaginable and inconceivable genres, beginning with mystical legends in hospital interiors, ending with social drama against the setting of an black backdrop, complacently not to mention transferred his efforts towards comedy genre, as really the only virgin soil, hitherto remaining unplowed. However, many viewers, checking "fresh" Trier, will understand they have no a sense humor. Or perhaps the Dane does not have it. "Which can be more often than not," we say to them in consolation.

The plot is straightforward: the director of an certain mid-range IT company hires an unemployed actor to effectively and convincingly portray the "most critical boss" in the wild, who won't take place in nature, who originates for 123 movies the Danish kingdom to examine his own home based business, for a moderate fee. Everything.

An hour and forty minutes of screen time "the leading boss" goes into funny troubles of the boltological nature, accepting conflicts and approximately close relations with work employees (6 "old people" with respect for gender balance), with an ex-girlfriend, with an Icelander, with a company ... Four times mcdougal himself intervenes from the events, together with the confident voice in the creator "exposing" the comedy on the viewer, voicing and illustrating the laws in the genre's existence.

Generally, the humor in "The Most Important Boss" need to be WANTED to see. I want to to, and it had become funny to me. Not continuously, she didn't tear her tummies, but there are sufficient truly funny situations. And the atmosphere of the main absurdity is quite successfully supported by the image, whose originality is due, apparently, to the particular Automavision, created by Trier, because no living and healthy operator would dare to shoot like that. Frequently during the frame you will find there's doorway, then some type of computer monitor, then only half in the character's face, uttering remarks. Feeling that the camera lives a unique life, whatever the characters. And this is also funny.

To mention that the image is minimalistic is always to say nothing! In "Boss" we have seen a type of hi-tech through the cinema: white smooth walls, office furniture - completely straight lines and standard colors, equipment for your office, judging with the disposition while in the frame, playing the title role, faces and figures of characters.

It is evident by investing in this type of ascetic plot and scenery, the audience's interest automatically shifts towards the characters from the film and what it is said (to less extent, what they're doing). To "keep" a person's eye and attention of anyone, you must PLAY! And perhaps they are playing.

One cannot but praise, naturally, Jens Albinus, whose surprisingly stupid and touching face, "The chief boss" owes a huge portion of his success. The roles of losers and bungler look fantastic inside the performance of just such guys, causing sympathy and slight annoyance at the same time.

An interesting fact is the presence inside casting on the director of your heavyweight, affectionately accepted back then "Angels of your Universe", the Icelander Fridrik Thor Fridriksson inside role of a business partner, in addition to a potential buyer of this entire office, completely indefatigable and uncontrollable, damn HOT (huh) and extremely undiplomatic Icelandic uncle Finnur. The role is small, but very striking.

Of the women, perhaps, I have to praise the "real blonde" Iben Yail, who's still remembered by me for the role with the hysterical Scandinavian girlfriend of your character John Cusack in Stephen Frears'"High Fidelity", plus a good game in "Dogme-95" No. 3 - "Mifune's Last Song" ... Excellent madama. P-ara will be where she were required to - might have settled in Hollywood with millions of royalties.

Instead of conclusions.

The film is funny and original, but not free of a fair number of boredom. For a comedy, pure water isn't drawn, but quite watchable, or even at 2 am. I wouldn't recommend it to everyone and everybody, but fans of Trier's antics will, There's no doubt that, be satisfied. As, however, and connoisseurs of oh-oh-very subtle, barely noticeable humor. Anyone who wishes to waste time and see how cinematic geniuses apply it - you happen to be welcome! That way.
